When: 9/13, 8:00 p.m. ET
Analysis: These teams, both among the top five in Mississippi in MaxPreps’ rankings, come together for the third year in a row after each beat the other once in the last two seasons.
For Madison Central, quarterback Jimmy Holiday will have to be efficient in the passing and run game. The three-star athlete has completed 65% of his passes and leads the team with 316 rushing yards. Pearl will likely continue its reliance on Kenyatta Harrell, who leads the state of Mississippi with 742 rushing yards in just three games.
